The 2016 Telluride Horror Show is in full swing and we’re here to tell you all about it! First off, it’s taking place October 14th through 16th in Telluride, CO. The event, which is entering its seventh year, will be bringing dozens of full and short length horror films from around the world. In the past, the event acted as the premiere location for films such as The Tour, The Last Man, Breathe, The Battery, The Last Will And Testament of Rosalind Leigh, and much more. They also have shown a number of Colorado Premieres in recent years, including Bone Tomahawk, Creep and Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil. Other Official Selections have included The Babadook, Darling and The Hallow.
On top of showing films in both the historic Sheridan Opera House and Nugget Theatre, the festival has also expanded this year into the Wilkinson Library Program Room, which will allow for, “…panels, special presentations and crossover film programming in the science fiction, fantasy and psychological thriller genres.”
When it comes to finding a place to stay, the Telluride Horror Show has everything planned out:
Telluride Alpine Lodging has returned as the festival’s lodging sponsor, making an already off-season weekend getaway even more affordable. Attendees will receive 15% off with promo code CELEBRATION15. Rooms start at just $109. Condos are also available, starting at $186.
The festival is not just limited to films. There will also be an ice cream social, the annual “Pig Roast”, and a closing party, as well as other events that will be announced in the coming months.
$125 three-day passes, which provide access to the film screenings and all special events, are available for immediate pre-order right here. They are expected to sell out based on previous years and their performance.
Meanwhile, all filmmakers who are interested in their films being seen can now submit through the official website. The regular deadline for film submissions is July 15, 2016 and there’s a late deadline of September 20th.
